The Bottom

Stop.
Please do not come closer
for I fear that I could lose you x
In one step, you fall off a cliff and plunge yourself into my despair.
The dark hole that tries to fill itself with lustful encounters
and whiskey neat.

I tried to warn you.
As if the beware sign was erased with the love
you tried to paint me x
You shouldn't be here.
It isn't safe for someone like you
to join someone like me
as we free fall into this
seemingly
endless
pit.

When will we hit bottom?
